Thougth prices were high for what you got and food was average. The crab cake was 16.00 and about the size if a golf ball. It is a pretty location on the water but expected more for the quality of food.

Had a wonderful lunch here today while visiting Chesapeake City. Roast beef sandwich - excellent; wild mushroom strudel, chicken salad and key lime pie - very good. The only disappointment was the "edge" salad, which proved light on bacon bits and dressing. The Kentucky pie made up for it. Service and surroundings were excellent.

I'm a little surprised that we enjoyed our meal as much as we did. I had the fish tacos, my husband had the crabcake sandwich. Both were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The sweet potato fries were killer! The restaurant decor is a little outdated, but we sat outside and watched the boats pass by. It was a great place to... More

the food there is wonderful!! The Bayard House restaurant has a great view of the river while you enjoy your dinner. There is even a small bub under Neath where the barmaids are very charming.

The location is great, right on the water! Outside bar and dining areas were great as well. The fish tacos are out of this world!

Nice place right on the canal. Sat on the covered porch and it was roomy and comfortable. Had a cup of Md crabsoup. Had very little crab taste and mostly tomatoes. Also had fried oysters and chicken salad entrée. I think they called it the Eastern Shore Platter. Oysters were well prepared but were kind of bland tasting. Told that... More

This is a nice place to eat. The service and the food were excellent. While sitting at the umbrella bar, we saw a huge car carrier ship come down the canal -- that was as added feature since it is right on the water.

It's always a pleasure to revisit the Bayard House. We came for lunch this week and were not disappointed. First we split a dozen oysters, cold, on ice and very large. I think they are from Virginia. They were also shucked perfectly and the adductor muscle was cut cleanly. They served up a small plate of flatbreads and breads with... More

Historic building in Chesapeake City. It's great to eat on the covered terrace with the C&D with the ships passing about 100 feet away. The also have a nice outdoor bar for drinks and food. Located for easy walking to all the shops in town. The food and service are very good, and the fried oysters are a favorite.

We stumbled into the Bayard Inn for dinner when we arrived somewhat late into Chesapeake City - and we're really glad we did! The setting is really pretty, as is the restaurant itself. It's the kind of place that is very nice, with truly excellent food - and could be stuffy but it's just so friendly that it's not at... More
